Least-Cost Climatic Stabilization

By Amory Lovins

This paper argues that global warming is not a natural result of normal, optimal economic activity. Rather, it is an artifact of the economically inefficient use of resources, especially energy. Amory Lovins describes advanced technologies for resource efficiency, and proven ways to implement them. These changes can support present or greatly expanded worldwide economic activity while stabilizing global climate and saving money.
